Itty Bitty Greetings, Halloween Card, September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I had found a fun card on Pinterest using the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit to make an alternate card.  I thought it was SO cute.  I had lost the original card and I couldn't find where it was. I looked for it in Pinterest and had no luck. If you see one similar to this card, please let me know so I can provide a link and give the designer credit. 

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic Black card stock. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Mango Melody card stock. I stamped the pumpkins on it using Cajun Craze ink and the stamp that came in the kit. I added the faces to the pumpkins. I thought since it was a Halloween card, all the pumpkins should have faces. I taped this piece to the front of the card.

I cut a 1-1/2" strip of the Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Plaid Tidings" 6" x 6" paper stack. I taped it to the bottom of the Cajun Craze piece. 

A 1/4" piece of Daffodil Delight was cut and used as a "ribbon" across the DSP. I just lined it up with the top of the DSP.

I die cut a Whisper White circle using the 2-1/8" circle die and I also die cut a scalloped circle just a little larger using Basic Black card stock. I taped those two layers together and I taped that piece to the front of the card.

The words are from the "Itty Bitty Greetings" set and I stamped them using Cajun Craze ink on a label that came in the kit. I added a little tape on the bottom back and stuck on one of the curly pieces that were in the kit. 

I did find my pumpkins. After punching out the bunch (and I mean BUNCH) of images in the kit I put them in little zip baggies to keep them not only separate but from getting bent and torn because the curly pieces stuck to other images and to themselves too. I found the baggie of the double pumpkins in between the party favor boxes.  I was glad to have found them. I was pretty sure I hadn't used them all  up but I don't always remember what I do anymore!! LOL  SO I stamped the faces on the pumpkins and I set the pumpkins in place using Dimensonals.

I set the words piece in place with small Dimensionals. And I added the black flower using a Dimensional. I chose black because it went better with the DSP than the other colors in the kit. The original card didn't have a flower in the corner, I just thought it would look cute there. And I don't think the original card had faces on their pumpkins.  I will keep an eye out for it and edit my post at the bottom with the link should I find it.

This was a very fun card to make. I like the background and the colors. I think it was the colors that drew my eye to it.  I found another one with stunning colors and I may try it in a few days.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,

This is a great Halloween card. I love making holiday cards. After I saw your card the other day, I decided to look on eBay and found a set that was new. I didn't "need" it but I "needed it". :)
